Potatoes. One of the most versatile foods we have. You can mash, fry, knish, croquette, bake, boil, au gratin, scallop them and even more things that I can’t think of. However the simple baked fry will always have my heart. Now I don’t mean to be cocky but I have perfected the oil free baked fry and since I am so nice I will share it with you. (Please note the sarcasm there I am not that full of myself haha)

It all starts off with using the right potato. The best potato for fries are the yukon gold potatoes. They are soft, crisp up nice on the outside and stay soft on the inside. Giving you the perfect fry using no oil. Of course if you want to add a little olive oil be my guest but these really don’t need it.
One other thing of course you can use any spices you like but I have found this blend gives off a very tasty and restaurant quality like fry. Think fancy french fries. We are not going for Micky D fries over here. PS if you didn’t know their fries are not vegan 😦
2-3 gold potatoes
1-2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp parsley flakes
2 tsp salt
1 tbsp onion powder
Preheat oven to 450F. Begin by washing and if you like peeling your potatoes. I also like to cut out any little weird growths that come up on potatoes. Then cut the potato into quarters. Cut your quarters into quarters and then slice the big wedges in half so you have long french fries. In a bowl add your cut potatoes and seasonings. Toss to coat them well. If you want to use oil this is your time to do it. But make sure to get each fry coated in the seasoning nicely. Onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper place make sure to give each fry space. Do not pile them all onto of each other. You want one side of the potato to be down on the pan. Then place in the oven for about 30-40 minutes depending on your oven and flip halfway through. The nice thing about golden potatoes is they tend to cook a bit quicker. Be sure to test your fry after about 30 minutes to determine how much more cooking it needs. Sometimes I like to even squirt some lemon juice on my fries. After you can dip it in ketchup, vegan honey mustard, cheese dip like I showed in the video or anything you want!
